Pakistan’s former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar was approached for a Bollywood film which he later refused to do.
The cricketer has a vast fan following in India and Bollywood, praised by actors like Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.
In an interview with a foreign news agency, Akhtar said, "I was offered to play a lead role in the movie Gangster which was later on done by Emraan Hashmi."
Feeling remorse, he added, "Now I think I should have done that film."
The film Gangster was a pure love story with Kangana Ranaut, Shiny Ahuja and Emraan Hashmi as the main characters.
